Ms. Arnaz will be performing her brand new cabaret show, "I GOT THE JOB!: Songs from My Musical Past."

From her first role at 14 as The Cheshire Cat in Alice in Wonderland to a grandmother hanging upside down on a trapeze while singing about the preciousness of life in Pippin, Lucie and Musical Director Ron Abel offer audiences this new concert sharing stories and songs that Lucie has long been known for. With anecdotes and fond memories about her co-stars, directors and musical collaborators, Lucie offers iconic songs and hidden treasures from some of Broadway's greatest shows and a look at the backstage magic it takes to create them. A not to be missed evening of entertainment celebrating our great American Musical Theatre.
Lucie Arnaz began her long career in a recurring role on the television program The Lucy Show. At age fifteen, she became a series regular on Here's Lucy, a show which ran for six seasons. She later starred in her own series, The Lucie Arnaz Show and later in the critically acclaimed Sons & Daughters on CBS.
On film Lucie has co-starred in The Jazz Singer with Neil Diamond and Sir Laurence Olivier, as well as starring in several made for television movies including Who Killed The Black Dahlia, Washington Mistress, The Mating Season, Who Gets The Friends?, Abduction of Innocence and Down to You, a Miramax feature film with Freddie Prinze, Jr. and Henry Winkler. Lucie's independent films include Wild 7 and The Pack.
On the stage, Lucie first created the role of Kathy in the west coast premier of Vanities at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles. She then hit Broadway starring as Gittel Mosca in the national company of the musical Seesaw. She spent a summer at The Jones Beach Theatre in New York, in the starring role of Annie Oakley in the play Annie Get Your Gun. Broadway beckoned her back and she went on to star as the unforgettably wacky Sonia Wolsk in the Neil Simon/Marvin Hamlisch musical They're Playing Our Song. Lucie appeared in the American premiere of Educating Rita and starred in the national tours of Whose Life is it Anyway? and I Do! I Do! The reviews were outstanding for her re-creation of one of Lynn Fontanne's great roles in a revival of The Guardsman after which Lucie went on to star opposite Tommy Tune in the international company of the acclaimed Gershwin musical My One and Only. Under the direction of Mike Nichols, she toured nationally in the Andrew Bergman comedy Social Security. Lucie returned to the Broadway stage where she received rave reviews for her portrayal of Bella in the Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning play, Lost in Yonkers, written by Neil Simon. In 1995, she starred off Broadway in Grace and Glorie, a two-woman play, with Estelle Parsons. She starred as Maria Callas in Terrance McNally's Tony-Award winning play, Master Class, and as Ruth in a revival of Wonderful Town in Los Angeles. Lucie made her UK theatrical debut starring as Alexandra in the Cameron Mackintosh musical, The Witches of Eastwick, which opened at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane in London in July 2000. Most recently, Lucie marked her return to Broadway in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels in which she had the wonderful opportunity to be seduced on stage every night by Jonathan Pryce, Keith Carradine and Greg Jabara!
Touring the U.S. and Europe with her critically acclaimed nightclub act, Lucie has made stops in Las Vegas, Atlantic City, Reno, and Feinstein's at the Regency in New York. Her debut album, Just in Time, for Concord Jazz, Latin Roots, and Lucie Live! At Feinstein's at the Regency released in February 2018.
Arnaz and her husband, actor/writer Laurence Luckinbill, teamed up to form ArLuck Entertainment, a film and television Production Company, and together produced the documentary Lucy & Desi: A Home Movie, which aired on NBC and was honored with an Emmy. Another company, Education through Entertainment, published two CD-ROMs - Lucy & Desi: The Scrapbooks, Volume 1 and How to Save Your Family History, A 10-Step Guide by Lucie Arnaz.
Lucie has received other awards during her distinguished career, including the Los Angeles Drama Critic's Circle Award, the Theatre World Award, an Outer Critic's Circle Award, in addition to Chicago's famed Sarah Siddons Award.
